Decision 2022 at Southside United Methodist Church
A while ago, Pastor Phillip read a letter to the congregation. It was calling attention to the pending division in our denomination. A copy of that letter was sent via email, linked in the newsletter, and posted below here on the sumcjax.org website.
Since he has asked various members of Southside to serve on a "Study Team." Thus tasking them to research ALL the options available to Southside on this matter. This study team will carefully review, learn and study all the options to provide the Southside church community with as much information as possible. After the study team has taken a season doing so, they will report to the Southside congregation their findings. Upon hearing the gathered information, the Southside congregational members will be able to vote.
Please note: that the Decision 2022 Study Team is NOT deciding for the church; they are simply a committee formed to gather information and present it to the Southside congregation. Upon conclusion of their research, the committee will present its findings to the church. Members of the church will then be able to in-person vote on our future path.
As we recognize how important it is to keep our congregation up-to-date with the developments. Below, you will find a list of communications sent out to the congregation during this process to date. Please email them to the Decision 2022 Study Team at email@example.com - If you have any questions, comments, or concerns that you wish to raise.
If you can not attend any of the scheduled meetings discussing this matter please contact Pastor Phillip, Pastor Dale or the Study Team directly.
We are all here for each other!
